The review of this Movie prepared by Alicia
"Donnie Darko" is a nearly indescribable mix of science fiction, teen angst, satire, horror and humor that examines what happens when a high school student is visited in his sleep by a giant evil bunny rabbit who tells him the world will end in 28 days. He tries to unlock mysteries of time travel and find his identity, while at the same time unwillingly destroys the neighborhood around him. It's a truly original work from a first-time director.

This movie is a fabulous presentation of ones struggle against time, and against his own disabilities. He finds a girl whom he likes, and also has a "friend" whom is a giant rabbit. It makes very good points about time travel, and about peoples lives that could be secret.
